CIGNA Corporation Complaint - Cigna denies pharmacy benefits
By means of a back story, I have had type I diabetes for 48+ years with end stage renal failure (ESRF). Because of this I also suffer from severe anemia. Two years prior to my husband's company switching to Cigna my anemia was managed successfully by a drug called Procrit. Once my insurance was switched to Cigna, the authorization for Procrit was DENIED based upon the fact that my "numbers" were within normal range. This, as you might imagine, was due to the fact that I was on the Procrit. Cigna has now required me to go off the Procrit (thus experiencing severe anemic consequences)so as to prove I need the Procrit. In addition, they will NOT provide either me or my MD with the level that would qualify me for this drug! I am not not only frustrated but physically sick due to Cigna's mismanagement of their program!
